Hi ladies an gentlemen, I have checked with Royal Observatory in Edinburgh and we can get a private tour of the observatory :D The dates we have been offered are Monday 14th April, Wednesday 16th April or the 17th of April. The price for entry will be £3 to £4 and everybody is welcome including children. Please post below if you're interested. We can arrange transport through if people need a lift.Hope we get a good turn out as its an amazing observatory and if its clear a chance to see through the "Humongous" telescopes !

Thanks Chris

I've got the OK from "the Boss" for any of those dates.

However - what TIMES? Daytime or evening? Whatever way, I can offer car-share for up to 4 if needbe.

(I'm guessing the visits might be connected to the annual Edinburgh Science Festival events perhaps?)

Thats great, should be good. I am going to arrange it for about 19:30-20:00 so it gives everybody a chance to get home from work etc.Sunsets at 19:55 so we should get a chance to see the observatory during daylight and see through the telescopes when it gets dark :D

Hi Chris,

Date & time perfect. Depending on numbers wanting to go I could do with a lift but I'm prepared to take my car if need be.

See you on the 25th (club night) & we'll get things organized.

Cheers.
